Challenges facing the glass industry
After the glass is wet, white spots will form on the surface, that is, mold will appear, and then the alkaline moldy components on the surface will corrode the glass, causing irreparable losses. Additionally, glass is often shipped in overlapping packages. Once wet, they stick tightly together and won’t come apart easily.
Since the 21st century, with the rise of new energy sources, the application of glass has become more extensive. Ultra-white patterned glass is mainly used in solar cell packaging and is an indispensable and important component of solar photovoltaic cells. Once the photovoltaic glass is damp and moldy, the appearance of the glass and the mechanical properties of the product will change, resulting in the scrapping of the product and causing huge losses. Since 2007, our company has established long-term cooperative relations with many photovoltaic glass manufacturers, and has accumulated rich experience in drying and humidity control technical solutions for photovoltaic glass, cells and photovoltaic modules.
Here are some of the challenges that the glass industry often faces:
The glass industry generally uses fungicides to deal with the problem of glass mold. This is only a remedy, and cannot fundamentally solve other problems of damp glass. It is recommended to use a desiccant to solve the problems of damp and mildew during glass storage and transportation. For glass shipped in overlapping packaging, it is recommended to use a barrier between the glass and place a desiccant in the package.
